The Hotel Accademia is located in an old
building dating back to the 14th Century, once the
home of Bernardo Cennini, a famous goldsmith
and sculptor who was born in Florence in 1415 and who worked
on the creation of the wonderful Saint John's Baptistry.
Cennini was one of the artists who worked on the huge Baptistry's
door and on the Altar, a splendid work of art made entirely
from silver (400 kilos) in Gothic-Renaissance style.
Some of the items that Cennini created are now on shown in the
Duomo's Museo dell'Opera.
